Celebrities always seem to glow when you see them on the red carpet. While it may be the result of really good makeup (and tons of concealer!), they appear to be way more rested than the average individual; i.e. us. Many stars have their own secret tricks on how to get a full night’s sleep, so give them a try if you want some quality shut eye.

A Spoonful of Honey

As Mary Poppins famously told us, a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down. Rosario Dawson is of the opinion that a spoonful of honey gives you a good night’s sleep. “It doesn’t mess with your digestive tract because you don’t really want to eat too much just before you go to bed. But it does act as brainfood for you while your body is doing all its repairs,” said The Mandalorian star. 

Consistent Bedtime

Jennifer Aniston has struggled with sleep issues such as insomnia, sleepwalking, and sleep anxiety. Her solution? A consistent bedtime. “Make bedtime the same every night, which is challenging for us actors, because if we’re on a movie, the schedule is all over the place,” the Friends star explains.

Calcium and Magnesium

Calcium is directly linked to our sleep cycle and a lack of calcium and magnesium can result in you waking up after a few hours and not being able to get back to sleep. Salma Hayek combats this by consuming a calcium magnesium drink. “It helps me. It also helps you go to the bathroom. You sleep well and you hmm hmm well,” revealed the Magic Mike’s Last Dance actress.
